Hardly an hour's drive from KL, Pinto Coffee provides an easy escape from the city, serving Mie Aceh with crab (RM15.50), Nasi Goreng Telur (RM10) & everything from buttermilk pancakes to buffalo wings to baked lasagne, plus Cendol Soya Cincau (RM6.50) & avocado ice-blended coffee (RM12), in a calm, back-to-the-kampung space where nature's sounds fill the air. The food & drinks taste wholesome, helping to make Pinto a pleasant place for lingering. Bring a book or browse the outlet's selection, & note that reaching Pinto requires driving up a pebbly slope, parking by the jungle & strolling uphill for a minute.
Also in this area, Purple Cane is equally worth a visit, with verdant, wide-open surroundings to complement a selection of lei cha, black tea curry chicken & oolong tea boiled vegetables. We enjoyed sitting in this wood-dominated restaurant & leisurely having Kindori vanilla ice cream cake (RM9.90) with lemon celery green tea (RM9.90) & carrot-orange-apple juice (RM12.90).
